Re: Wonder-Books Talk

Self contained stories are fine, it's just that they shouldn't contradict or constrict the characters from interacting with the larger universe outside the confines of their own corner. Placing weird, arbitrary rules that dictate how involved characters can get in stuff outside their own titles only...

Re: Bat-books Talk

As I've said before, nothing about Catwoman's character actually matters. She will always be whatever she needs to be to make BatCat works. There's nothing important or sacred about her character that couldn't be wiped out to service BatCat, and she can't afford it even if she had anything like that...

Re: Bat-books Talk

I mean, with King you take what little you can get. His portrayal of Catwoman might be one of few things that has been consistent about his run. Granted she's been consistently awful, but consistent nonetheless. If anything that shows his dedication to the character, given the way he writes other ch...

Re: Bat-books Talk

Nah I highly doubt Thomas actually killed Bruce. King will probably pull some BS explanation like Thomas using his surgical skills to shoot Bruce none lethally, even though he couldn't bring himself to shoot Damian an issue earlier because he was family. Beside he called for the Pirate, and I assume...

Re: Wonder-Books Talk

Funny how Batman is now suffering from the same self-contained mentality that's been hurting him ever since the N52 started, and has been brewing under the surface for a while. Not sure why DC is so afraid of letting their characters breath in the supposedly shared DCU, especially when it comes to t...

Re: Bat-books Talk

Yeah it's better we leave it at that. I know my Catwoman tirades can go on for a while if nobody stopped me. Red Son Batman is probably one of the cooler alternate Batmans out there. I agree that the Red Son story itself is pretty frustrating and not at all great when you think about it, and its tre...

Re: Robert Pattinson is cast as Batman

I thought the Joker movie was a dumb idea when they announced, so I'm definitely not 100% when it comes to predicting how these things will go. Still, the Joker was pretty much free to do whatever it wanted as it had very loose ties to the comics. The Batman can't afford to do that though, and Reeve...

Re: Bat-books Talk

When was the last time Catwoman's thievery was treated as an actual crime ? We've gotten to the point were Catwoman is actively stealing stuff while sleeping with Bruce in the Wayne Manor, and with Alfred's apparent blessings no less, so pray tell how could Bruce be a hypocrite if Catwoman wasn't do...

Re: Robert Pattinson is cast as Batman

Of course what you're saying makes sense, but that's not how Catwoman rolls. Just look to King's run and the amount of stuff he retconned into her backstory, like having a Batman-esque journey where she trained with the best masters to become a badass martial artist, despite being a poor orphan who ...

Re: Bat-books Talk

I was just clarifying that there's nothing that King could do that would change my opinion on him. He only got much worse during the time we stopped talking about him. City of Bane is abysmal, and is shaping up to be one of the absolute worst Batman stories to ever be put into print. I just don't bu...

Re: Robert Pattinson is cast as Batman

Catwoman can become an alien transformer for all people would care. As long as she's shagging with Batman, nothing else really matters about her character. Her being an Irene Adler wannabe makes sense in my opinion. It's the Riddler as Moriarty that I find odd, because the Riddler never been anythin...

Re: Bat-books Talk

I disagree that King's shown anything resembling intelligent writing before, but regardless the quality of his writing is not what I'm questioning here. I've said before that you can't really fix what's broken. No matter how good of a writer you might be, if you're understanding of the characters yo...

Re: Bat-books Talk

I don't think this is King backpedaling on his what he's done in his run, because 1) Why do it now ? 2) You don't just change your entire philosophy on something just like that. What King is saying about Batman in this Annual completely contradicts everything he's done in his run, and that makes abs...

Re: Robert Pattinson is cast as Batman

It's just that I've seen happen far too many times before, people gravitating towards the worst Batman takes even when far superior depictions of the characters exist everywhere else. Pattinson referencing King's run specifically is worrying. I know it's the current run, but if people who're unfamil...

Re: Bat-books Talk

That's the only way I can rationalize what's going on here. I didn't know that story about the Elmer Fudd crossover, but it does lend credence to the notion that King's collaborators often do most of the heavy lifting in his books. I personally didn't like any of his highly praised "self-contained" ...

Re: Robert Pattinson is cast as Batman

So Pattinson once again spoke about The Batman, specifically about the research he's been doing for the role, and hooo boy. "Appearing on Variety‘s The Big Ticket podcast, Robert Pattinson briefly explained where he’s at in the process. “I’m glad I’ve had quite a lot of time,” Pattinson told Variety...
